What makes a wine Organic or green?
Organic Wineries who are working to save the planet these days have a long list of weapons to use. The limiting or elimination of pesticides or herbicides has been the main tool, but there's much more... water conservation, solar power, the use of bio-diesel for farm vehicles, tractors and trucks, earth friendly packaging (recycled paper & cardboard), and carbon-neutral status (to neutralize the effect of personal greenhouse gas emissions, and not contribute to dangers of global warming). Besides the wines will end up tasting better.
